2012 Super Bowl: Giants Coach Tom Coughlin Says 'It's Still Us Against The World'

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has heard all the talk that maybe the Giants really are not the underdogs Sunday against the New England Patriots in the 2012 Super Bowl. He is aware of the analysts and prognosticators who have chosen the Giants to win. The veteran Giants coach is sticking to the Giants as underdogs script, however.

“It’s still us against the world,” Coughlin said during his Thursday press conference. “I’ve seen a lot of the stuff that’s been said … we’re still the underdogs. We still have an awful lot to prove.”

Injury Updates

Coughlin said that the Giants were “pleased” with the progress of running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) and that linebacker Jacquian Williams (ankle) “did well” during Wednesday’s practice.

“We’ll have to see about Ahmad. Certainly the time off has helped him. He worked a little bit of a day early a week ago, he’s worked two days early this week,” said Coughlin.
